Your Perks: 1) Handsome watches, available nowhere but Perks. 2) An iPhone case that doubles as four pro-grade camera lenses. 3) Leather wallets, handmade in Chicago and inspired by old-school gangsters. Who knew a thing or two about money...
Things to do for August 01, 2013
Shandies, Purple Pancakes and Reading by the Pool
Gonna be some sweet sounds, coming down, on the weekend.
It’s Miami Spice. Here’s What You Do.
It’s that time of year again. When our city loses it over three-course lunch and dinner specials around town. Yes, it’s Miami Spice. Your game plan: Makoto for short rib yaki udon, BLT for the surf-and-turf sushi roll and Bourbon Steak for the... kung pao chicken. Kidding, it’s steak. Go for the steak.
Your Mornings: Now with More Steak
Breakfast. It’s important stuff. You know this. So really, there’s no excuse for your half-eaten Pop-Tart routine now that SushiSamba’s rolling out stuff like chicha morada pancakes, steak and eggs, and a batida bar starting at 7am. Hey, early bird gets the... chicha morada pancakes.
Lester’s Gets in the Cocktail Game
Coffee, indie books, foreign journals. Yup, that’s Lester’s. But cocktails: umm... no. Well, until tomorrow. That’s when you’ll find a menu full of fizzy sangrias, shandies and glasses of chocolate stout with shots of espresso thrown in for good measure. Caffeine, alcohol, should be fine.
Your Sundays Require This Brunch
Bacon sticky buns. Bacon. Sticky. Buns. Now that we’ve got your attention... there’s some new brunch action happening at Restaurant Michael Schwartz. And by action, we’re talking about taking down some lemon ricotta pancakes, tangerine-custard french toast and the aforementioned bacon buns. You know, for the protein.
Hey, it’s Bookleggers’ first anniversary. To celebrate, they’re bringing their roving library to the Freehand for a pool party. So go. Grab a gratis book. Sip some Broken Shaker cocktails. And later, watch a screening of The Ninth Gate by the pool. Johnny Depp, books... makes perfect sense.
